    Adobe Flash Player for RHEL5

    I can't get Flash Player to work on RHEL, please help.

    Here's what I did.

    1. I installed Adobe YUM repository RPM package

    rpm -ivh....
    rpm --import .....

    2. I updated the repositories

    yum check-update

    3. Installed the packages

    yum groupinstall "Sound and Video"
    yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper curl

    And when I do a test by typing "adobelugin" on my Mozilla Firefox address bar, I'm not getting the right output. Meaning the plugin is not working. Did I miss anything? Thanks in advance.

    firefox might prompt you to install adobe flash plugin on webpage itself.

    if not then download standalone rpm of flash player and install.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Sorry to take so long to get to this - been on a road trip for the past 2 weeks. Anyway, just use "yum install adobe-repository-rpm-name.rpm" to install the repository. Then, install the flash plug-in. Usually, that is all you need. It will install itself for Firefox etc. If you are running the 64-bit version of FF, then install the x86_64 version, preferably. That has worked just fine for me on CentOS 5 and now on Scientific Linux 6 (clones of RHEL 5 and 6 respectively).
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Adobe Flash Player for RHEL5

    Thanks Rubberman...

    That's exactly what I did. But the missing piece was this...

    cp Desktop/ /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

    I copied the in my plugins directory. I read it from one of the post in this Forum and it worked like a charm. Don't know why they didn't mention that in the Adobe instructions and read me files. Thank you Linux Forums!!
